I was looking for a good gaming laptop and found this, for its specs its very cheap as this is the first laptop I've found with the HD5870 in it under a grand, this graphics card, 6gb RAM and i5 processor must be able to play every game on full setting with excellent FPS right?

I know, but this has Full HD which probably costs about £150 more, a HD5870 gaphics card, which you could never get with dell, well only for about an extra £500, 6gb of RAM, which probably costs an extra £100. I have looked around and this seems to be the best specced for its price, have a go at making this on spec on and XPS or alienware, im sure it will cost you wayyy more than a grand!

**Just checked all are atleast £1,050 and w/o the extras a 15" alienware starts at £929 and a worse spec...**

To ashamed nerds like myself, hearing you refer a monitor resolution as "full HD" all the time makes me lol inside every time.

Also, you will always find a better Dell gaming laptop, but at twice the price. ASUS are the best option for value and performance by far.

Ok here's something to think about. If this screen is "full HD", then what does that make my 2560x1440 external monitor? Super-duper HD?

Also, I probably can't find a better spec laptop for the price, I was just stating that you can find a better VALUE ASUS laptop (i.e. better specs, slightly higher price) :)

Ok I accept that, but for the specs you cant find a cheaper laptop and also that goes without saying if u spend more you get more, im really looking for something a little bit less than a grand and this is the best I could find, or for around £850ish is there a better one I can get (I just want a laptop for gaming! :) )

also the resolution has nothing to do with it, as you could get a screen with the resolution of like 1,000,000x40,000, so that wasnt a good counter arguement :/
#13
has been under a grand for months (930 last nov)
good machine but bound to be better ones coming or better decreases in these ones soon.
also no it cant max everything at full hd but it is a good machine

Yeh, but there will ALWAYS be newer computers coming out so unless there is a hugely better range coming out its a bit harsh to say that....

If you're referring to the Full HD comment, resolution has everything to do with it. 1920x1080 is considered Full HD.

read the rest of the thread, the guy knows that.
it was a reply to the smug git with the irrelevant external monitor who cant help but chuckle inside at these fools and their terms.

no it makes it XD.
either way smuggy. the usage of hd and full hd is the extremely common and accepted way of distinguishing between the 2 flavours of hd. hd720 and hd1080.
whether or not its perfectly correct doesn't make a difference.

In my experience, the pricing of UK electronic goods is ridiculous. I come from Hong Kong and the price difference in alienware products is ridiculous. I personally do not go for the big brands when to comes to gaming laptops as they are srsly over priced. Maybe you should check out http://www.sagernotebook.com as they are SO MUCH cheaper than the mainstream companies (for brand new laptops).

Anyway regarding this laptop, the HD factor should not even come into question as it is almost a given when it comes to gaming latops nowadays. What you are paying for is the cpu and the gpu. The gpu will perform admirably even with crysis 2. I have a gtx 280m in my sager and it runs it just fine in high settings in full hd on a 17.3" screen and the hd 5870 is a newer and better gpu. Although the cpu is of last generation it will also run just fine. Also 6gb of ram and 1 tb hardrive. USB 3 ports. For 888 pounds and in my experience of how expensive the UK is in comparison to countries like the US, I believe that this is what you would call a deal !! and will perform just fine with the games today and tasks you throw at it.

Thanks for the help, the reason why I had problems with this is because of its 1st gen processor :(

Yeah just had a look on notebookcheck.net and the 5870 is ranked #19 and the 555 is #43. The Dell has the better processor though? and a nice screen but only 1 year warranty where as the MSI has 2 years decisions...decisions...
#24
lol i know, the next en processor is a lot better in my eyes and hence i dont want to buy this MSI laptop.
#25
Yeah this is basically old tech it seems, apart from the GPU which is making it hold its price. If it was £700 I would make a purchase X)
#26
lol saw this in harrads for £1699
#27
LOL
#28
This is a great laptop, I have a friend with one and I never though a laptop could perform better than most desktop!

As for the smug git banging on about full HD. It is full hd, we don't care what monitor you have at home.

Price for performance on gaming, MSI has the best product at the moment. If you think alienware or Asus do, then post it! From what I have seen I think you will be sadly mistaken!
